Airport Lounges

Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Lounges

Video has no narration, no audio description

After arriving at the airport in style, relax in one of our lounges and soak up an intimate atmosphere that will set the tone for the luxurious flight you have ahead.

A lounge like no other

Our First Class Lounge & Spa is not like other lounges, it’s your first opportunity to experience a different level of service and hospitality, before stepping on board your flight.

Our team will deliver service and hospitality comparable to that you would experience in a 5-star hotel.

Unlike other lounges, you won’t have to queue at a desk when you arrive.

Only a few steps after security, you will be greeted by our Hostess, who will direct you upstairs to be personally introduced to the lounge. We have concierge desks inside the lounge to deal with your ticketing and service requests, so you don’t have to leave until it’s time to fly. We will take care of your bags for the duration of your stay in the cloakroom and will arrange for your clothes to be pressed while you are enjoying the lounge.

A completely reimagined lounge experience

The Dining Area

Choose from dining or casual seating areas, to enjoy our à la carte menus. We pride ourselves on making everything in-house, using the freshest ingredients.

Our signature dining has been designed to offer you options of a satisfying meal or an appetising bite.

Experience tastes from around the world with choices inspired by our home, Abu Dhabi and many of the destinations we fly to.
